A glimpse

into the gone

in the tales of yonder

beyond the visage

of newness

there lies




and impish glee

such innocent bliss

such poignant memories

no place thus to be found

no where thus seen


Hereโ€™s to the child in each one of us!

๐Ÿ‘จย Happy Childrenโ€™s day ๐Ÿ‘ฉ

  1. while reminiscing
    the gone days,
    the uninhibited
    minds and
    souls divine;
    while cursing
    the mature
    grown, walls
    on self, self
    i let, from past,
    the child, within,
    set free……..
    giggles and

    lovely poem……..who wouldn’t want to go back…….but the question is……who would want to leave? ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. I believe you. Most of us have grown up wishing for things that did not belong there just then. Although, now there isn’t a thing I would not do to relive those days even if it’s for a day. ๐Ÿ˜›

      1. Packing is always a slow business but I hope to get a few boxes of books in before the big move and then that will hopefully be quick and painless! Aiming for a week tomorrow but we shall see!

    1. Yes, absolutely. I made cupcakes for kids at an NGO I frequently visit. Their smiles lit up my face. One of the kids about 8 said – It reminded him of his mother. It made my heart melt.

    1. I can imagine. It has impacted some tiers of the society truly awfully. I couldn’t withdraw money from the cash points for five consecutive days. But it’s all for the greater good and that somewhat pacifies the growing panic.
